Reaccreditation ensures continuing compliance with DirectTrust HISP Policy requirements and interoperability with conforming HISPs
GSI Health today announced that it has been reaccredited through the DirectTrust Accreditation Program for Health Information Service Providers (HISPs). DirectTrust is a health care industry alliance created by and for participants in the Direct exchange network used for secure, interoperable messaging of personal health information (PHI) between provider organizations, and between provider and patients, for the purpose of improved coordination of care.
GSI Health is a leading provider of population health management technology that supports collaborative, “whole-person” care, uniting care coordination with insights to optimize value-based care for complex populations. GSI Health’s GSIHealthCoordinator platform uses Direct secure messaging to enable care teams to securely communicate and providers using EHRs to facilitate referrals and care coordination.
GSI Health’s HISP services software were audited against a series of technical, physical, and operational criteria and found to be fully in compliance with the Direct Project standards and the requirements of the DirectTrust Security and Trust framework.
“DirectTrust HISP accreditation certifies that an organization has established and upheld a superior level of trust for its stakeholders, which is a significant distinction. Kudos to GSI Health’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards in privacy, security and confidentiality,” said DirectTrust President and CEO David C. Kibbe, MD, MBA.
“Our reaccreditation by DirectTrust continues our deep commitment to broad interoperability and a free flow of information within the healthcare ecosystem,” said LeRoy Jones, founder and CEO of GSI Health. “Being part of the Direct network means that our clients can count on the highest security standards when they communicate and share information to solve critical population health issues.”
